I am a many-faced artist.
Studio visits have often made me uncomfortable. Mostly because the range of my work is quite wide. "Is this all your work?" I used to explain why. Now I let it be. The fact is, I am a many-faced artist. My "stylistic periods" overlap. In part due to my constant push to find myself, more so, due to painting like a "mood" dresser. I paint how I feel. I did most of the work (above) after the recent death of my father (Peter A. Scontras, 1928-2017). I needed calm and at the same time I was (and still am) processing the mystery of heaven and earth, impermanence, our physical bodies versus our spirit. Stay tuned.

Thank you for this post Lisa. I too feel many faced - i love how you feel and articulate this. I have often felt pressured to develop one style, but the soul of my work demands different styles and the curiosity inside of me to push the limits with different mediums and techniques cannot be stopped :)

I'm staying tuned. Art is nothing if not an expression of the artist (imo). You are an artist in every sense of the word and I love watching your art evolve. XO

Thanks for this - what a breath of fresh air. Sometimes I feel like my work is too scattered and I must be doing something wrong because it doesn't all look like it came from the same hand. I appreciate hearing otherwise. I enjoy reading the thoughtful blog. Love your work - all "styles".
